HOW TO TAKE PARTThe London Games Festival Games Character Parade will be a showcase of the vibrancy of iconic games characters and designs - and we're now holding an open call for cosplayers and games fans to take part. The parade is all about you, and we want you to feel this is not only a platform that celebrates the festival but also showcases and spotlights your efforts.
Entry is free, but we are asking all those interested to apply in advance using the form below. We're looking for games-inspired costumes of characters (to be clear - they must have appeared in a game), and as we're in a public space have rules about family-friendly attire and conduct. Professional cosplayers and frequent attendees of cosplay exhibitions are welcome - but so too are newcomers. You can read the full terms and conditions here.
All those who take part will be supported on the day with a space to change and store belongings, with refreshments and security/stewards controlling the parade route. You'll also get access to post-event photography (including a VERY special group photoshoot at the parade's climax outside a key London landmark!), and all participants will get their own copy of a post-event pictorial magazine. More details on the programme are to follow soon, but in the meantime register your interest below and join the parade!
